Out and About: August 2012

I’ll be peddling my wares at a few events this month.

1. Singapore River Market

dates: 10–12 & 17–19 August 2012 [fri to sun]
time: 3.00PM to 10.00PM daily
venue: central@clarke quay, along the Singapore river

I’ve always seen the bazaar along the river, always wondered how to get a booth and ALWAYS forgotten to find out how. Fortunately for me, someone from the company managing the river market asked if I was interested.

2. Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Entrepreneurship & Innovation Week 闹 Nào Marketplace

date: 13 and 14 August 2012 [Mon & tue]
time: 10.30AM to 5.30PM
venue: NTU Plaza @ South Spine

Without realising, I’m turning into an entrepreneur of sorts! But still, ‘Craftster’ before anything else. The event seems a little off-beat for me, but I think it’ll be worth my time. Thankfully, they partnered with MAAD, otherwise I would have missed the opportunity.

3. OH FLEAS! @ The Arts House

date: 24 to 26 August 2012 [Fri to sun]
time: 1.00PM to 9.00PM
venue: The Arts House

Frankly, I don’t know why it’s so difficult to name a market. Despite the name, there will be NO FLEAS at the market and no second-hand crap. (The name should be ‘OH FLEAS! BE GONE!’. Also, the ONLY legit flea market in Singapore can only be Sungei Road.) Anyways, this is an arts market that aims to showcase creativity.

It is part of the Causeway Exchange Festival, which runs from 23 to 26 Aug. Their aim is basically to bring together art and culture from Malaysia and Singapore. Pretty interesting! I definitely want to establish myself in Malaysia in the future too!

So mark your calendars! I’m really excited for August!
